I've been disappointed by their new album. They left their harsh noise behind for a more alternative rap which sounds groovier but suffers of a lack of energy.  Agreed. While it may not be as gimmicky as the first record might have suffered from, the new album has material that can get stuck in your ear a little bit longer but it's material that I don't really wish would be in there for long as the songs just don't do anything for me. NeedleDrop seemed to have really enjoyed this album and that's fine but this is surely not one that I will want to keep revisiting.
scomatsho, maybe you should check their Facebook, Soundcloud and label page.
“clipping. makes party music for the club you wish you hadn’t gone to, the car you don’t remember getting in, and the streets you don’t feel safe on; are phantom broadcasts bleeding into Power 106 as you drive out of range; are twenty different rappers looking into one broken mirror, talking to themselves all at once; are classic west coast rap music out of the tradition where sounding different wasn’t cause for fear” (Press release for Midcity, September 2012).
the official download for midcity doesn't have the period in the tags, so as far as i'm concerned "Clipping" is the right tag. why does everyone on last.fm seem to think the band name has to match the logo exactly? maybe last.fm should allow individual fonts for every band too.
